Synopsis

"The No-Nonsense Guide to International Migration" unravels the global migration paradox, explaining the economic and social issues behind the flows of humans. Virtually any commodity can move around the world to satisfy demand but human beings have far less freedom. Many would-be migrants are forced to risk life and limb traveling illegally. Yet most rich countries are short of workers, have shrinking populations and need more immigrants. This is a timely guide to a major issue which incites strong opinions and is never far from the political headlines. Giving an up-to-date analysis of the current situation, this book aims to explode some of the myths about the motives of migrants.
